To find out about the services which Age UK South Lakeland can offer older people call
our helpline on 01539 728180 and we will put you in touch with your local Village Agent,
Ruth Taylor or visit her at St Mark’s Church in the vestry on Thursday 2 July and 6
August from 10.30am to 11am. Have a chat with Ruth and find out whether you might be
entitled to apply for any other benefits such as Attendance Allowance or Pension Credit.
If you are applying for a Blue Badge, she can help you with the application. She can also
tell you about all the services which Age UK offer in the local area such as lunch clubs,
exercise and social groups. She would be happy also to visit you at home. Contact Ruth
Taylor via the Age UK helpline on 01539 728180.

Admin and reception volunteers needed at Age UK South Lakeland
Our shop in Kendal is in urgent need of volunteers to help run and support the valuable ongoing work for the community. Age UK South Lakeland is a charity that could not exist without its many volunteers. We rely on over 200 volunteers to provide our services and support for older people throughout the South Lakeland Area. We hope you will be interested in joining our friendly and helpful team. We welcome volunteers of all ages and every penny we raise in South Lakeland is spent on supporting older people in South Lakeland. Please ring Roy Dangerfield (Volunteer Support Officer) on 01539 728118 today or email
